Kramer (Hooper Atchley) is working the gold fields by buying up a miner's claim and then having his men kill the miner and retrieve both the money and his gold.
His latest victim is Jack Tarrant's (Jack Hoxie) partner Sellers (Lafe McKee).
Jack suspects Kramer is behind the killings and he has a plan that will catch him and his men in the act.

Satisfying, somewhat unconventional oater
I thought this was a well-constructed, enjoyable early Western.
It has unconventional elements, as for instance: the hero's partner in his gold mine is no paragon; in fact, he's a selfish, petulant old reprobate, a would-be claim-jumper. He has almost no redeeming qualities at all, except that he gets killed.
The hero is blamed for the murder (pretty standard fare). But he finds a rather unconventional way to catch the real murderer.
The lead actor is not much of an actor, but that doesn't hurt the movie too much. One thing I thought was funny was in the last scene, where the hero and the love interest are reconciled; he puts his arms around her but he is obviously too shy to really hug her -- he just loosely encircles her with his arms. Funny.
All in all, the movie is an enjoyable foray into Western justice. A good time will be had by all who watch it.

In the opening scene two different horses are used, one white and one tan which is painfully obvious. Evidently the white horse was to tamed to buck anyone so the horse has a stunt double...sort of.

i was going to give this movie one star, but then i realized that when the script called for gunfire, there was gunfire. amazing considering the acting in this movie, except for the horse who turns in a superior performance.
